Martin Cilia, via you tube, basically reignited my passion for surf guitar. Has anyone seen his version of Hawaii Five-0. The sound qulity on the video is not so great, but, that aside, it absolutely rocks!!! I never get tired of trying to decide what guitar tone I like better his Atlantics stuff with the Strat or his solo stuff with the Jaguar. He also makes a Les Paul sound really good on some psudo surfy stuff. If I could swim to Austrailia I would so be there. Hey I hear it's cheaper than flying Big Razz

No doubt that Martin Cilia, The Atlantics reignited my passion for instrumental/surf guitar too.
